  • Eugenias thrive in sunny, warm temperate locations. Partial lighting conditions will result in more frequent flowering. Avoid intense afternoon sun shining through windows in the summer.
  • If leaves begin to droop, place outdoor in full sun temporarily.
  • Eugenia should be kept indoors during the winter months. They should be maintained at winter temperatures above 60 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • Fertilize your bonsai once every two weeks. We recommend using a bonsai fertilizer.
  • To water your bonsai, water, wait a few minutes, and water again. Repeat this several times to insure that your bonsai has received a thorough watering.
  • Pruning – The clip-and-grow method is very successful with this species.
